Horse Rescue Fundraising Calendar

My “other home” is Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI. Lost Creek Ranch is a 501(c)3 Horse Rescue that rehabs and retrains horses and gives them a forever home. Each year I design a calendar and here are a few favorite pages from the 2014 edition. You can see more and order your copy through me or Lost Creek Ranch:

It’s a Mare…

Here she is- my new mare! Never thought I would own a mare but Elizabeth is all legs with amazing movement and (hopefully) the temperament to tolerate me! Look for us in the dressage ring this summer (in between weddings and high school seniors and of course equine sessions!):

Fall Family Session

How beautiful is this family? I have been lucky enough to be their photographer since mom and dad got married! We had the perfect fall day and I couldn’t be happier with the mood and light:

Horseshow Success

Personal post! I know I don’t post much about my personal life on my blog but I just had to share this pic taken of me and one of the horses I ride and have worked with since he was an unstarted 2 yr old. Nickers is growing into a sweet, kind horse with a huge heart and I couldn’t be prouder! We have competed in two dressage shows now and this photo is us after his second show which he won beating the next highest horse by 7%! Starting to see signs of a mature horse with a brain and some talent emerging- and look at that face 🙂 horse love…


Fall Portrait Fundraiser at Lost Creek Ranch

Every year I dedicate one day to photographing families and individuals on location at Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI (about 45 mins east of St Paul). 1oo% of the $50 session fee is donate to the ranch (a 501(c)3 non profit horse rescue). Here are some favorite shots from this years shoot:

Vintage Inspired Wedding

Perfect weather, perfect couple- what a day! Cedarhurst Mansion in Cottage Grove MN has long been one of my favorite wedding locations simply because of the variety of places to shoot from manicured gardens to rustic outbuildings and of course the formal mansion itself. Check it out:

“Tell me it can’t be done, and I will do it. Tell me the goal is too high, and I will reach it. Place an obstacle in front of me, and I will leap over it. Challenge me, dare me, or even defy me. But do not underestimate me. For on the back of my horse, anything is possible.”
